This casserole is tasty and hearty and feels like good old fashioned home cooking.
Recipe from: me
- 2 lbs hot Italian turkey sausage
- 10 medium russet potatoes
- 2-3 tbsp. butter
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pkg. frozen spinach
- 8 slices swiss cheese
- 1 c. chicken broth ??? (the jury’s still out on that one)
Scrub your potatoes squeaky clean and cut into 1 in. cubes, skin on. Saute them in butter and salt and pepper to taste, until they become brown and crispy. Place in a very large mixing bowl
Meanwhile, squeeze the sausage out of its casings and brown. Drain sausage and empty into the bowl with the potatoes.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Saute the onion in butter until translucent. Add garlic and cook an additional minute. Add to potato and sausage bowl. Smash the frozen spinach package against the counter to loosen, then break any very large chunks up with your fingers, feeling through the bag. Empty the spinach into the mixing bowl with everything else. Stir everything until well combined, then pour out into a very large, greased casserole dish. (Possibly add chicken broth at this point. I did this past time and it didn’t fully absorb, so in the future I’d experiment with leaving it out altogether.)
Top the mixture with all of the swiss cheese slices, then place in the oven and bake 25 min. or until golden brown.
